It’s been a while I have not written anything to this blog. I’m doing well as the usual. I’ve done some tests at school, kept playing the music all the time, as well the football match every week. Time flies when you have fun. For me, I often kill spare time by first playing some tunes, then surfing the webs. I’m hungry now, my stomach tells me you should go and grab a bite. The…Continue

There are at…Continue

A lot of people talk about wanting more balance and flexibility in their work and in their lives, about wanting to achieve “work/life” balance. Work isn't something you do when you’re not living your life. It’s just as much a part of your life as family time or play. You get to choose what matters most to you, and how much attention you wish to give to each area of your life first, second, and so on. If you don't have much control over the hours…Continue

From the outside it looked like a pretty unusual small cafe but it stretches around the back of the building and offers glorious views of Edinburgh Castle from the…Continue

Today is mother' day. Most of all I wish a happy day for all mothers. Despite, in our country we don't celebrate it because we think mother should have her day EVERY DAY.
How your country celebrates this day and what particular thing you wish your mother.
I would ask if anyone knows why the mother' day is just before the beginning of the spring?

My girlfriend and I walked the long length of the platform, with dozens of other excited passengers, until we found our carriage located near the front of the train. We boarded the train, found our seats and settled in for the 4 hour high speed train from London to Edinburgh.…Continue

There was a loud knock on the door. I opened it to find our friendly postman standing there with a small box in his hand. I expected it to be vitamins, dog tablets or similar as these are so much cheaper bought on line. I signed for the box and after a chat about the weather, bad as usual, I returned indoors.
This box however, had come from very far away. Not an online purchase then! What could it be? There were three layers of wrapping so the anticipation grew whilst taking these…Continue
